This is one of our favorite local spots for desserts. It's also locally owned and operated so you feel good about spending your hard earned money here. I think we have tried every cheesecake between the two of us! They are all fantastic. My favorite is the Chocolate Rasberry. It has an Oreo crust. It is absolutely to die for.... More

My husband is a cheesecake aficionado and Cheesecakes by Alex is one of his favorites! We never miss an opportunity to stop for dessert after dinner downtown. He's from Long Island so he is picky about cheesecake! His favorite birthday cake EVER was when I ordered a full cheesecake with a different flavor for each slice. He was in heaven!... More

What a nice cozy place to get a fantastic choc-raz cheese cake. We also enjoyed the carrot cake. Seating available inside and outside. Enjoyed the stop while walking around town waiting for the local grasshoppers baseball game to start.

My cousin & I was wandering around Greensboro downtown & I've finally found this place! We went inside to check it out; she ordered the Chocolate Chip Cheesecake & it was very smooth & creamy. I forgot what I ordered, but it was like a bar- it had chocolate chip & coconut & it was very tasty, sweet, and chewy.... More

This is an institution in Greensboro. I picked it up with a friend one night and we loved every bite of it. If you want a desert that is delicious - go to Cheesecakes by Alex! Keep cash and consider having their coffee too. Perfect late night desert on a cold night

I have been here numerous times over the years and I am extremely satisfied every time. The choices make it very difficult to try just one slice. Skip dessert at dinner and come here instead!

We stopped two different nights for dessert at Cheesecakes by Alex. I agree that it is a charming place and different cheesecake selections each time. We sat outside and watch the pedestrian traffic in downtown Greensboro. I'm not sure the cheesecake beats the Cheesecake Factory but the staff was friendly and plenty of selections. I would visit again on the... More

Cheesecake's by Alex is a fantastic local dessert restaurant with a charm unique to Greensboro. The staff is pleasant, though not overly friendly. The dining area is small, but the outdoor patio is lovely in the summertime. We had a fun time sitting outside watching the Greensboro nightlife on a Friday night. It can get pretty full during the summer... More
